Implementing Teacher Education Centers: The Florida Experience.
Van Fleet, Alanson A.; And Others
Research Bulletin, v10 n3 Spr 1976
This monograph is an historical document portraying the problems of starting Florida's first ten teacher education centers (1974-75). Its aim is to provide information to individuals and groups considering active participation in teacher education centers. The document is organized as four sections followed by a bibliography and appendix. The first section, "Teacher Education Centers in Florida: An Overview," discusses the basic concepts of teacher centers and the internal organization of centers. The second section, "Start Up Problems of Teacher Education Centers in Florida," catalogs the problems common to Florida Teacher Centers: deadlines and directives, organizational strain, reward systems, needs assessment, grass roots support, incentives and distractions, and external events. Section three of the document, "Inside Calico Teacher Education Center," is a diary of a hypothetical center council. Section four, "Generalizations from the Florida Experience," summarizes observations about the program. An appendix contains an instrument designed to survey the inservice needs of teachers. (DMT)
